Table of Contents

Tour the cemeteries of Pennsylvania's three original counties (Philadelphia, Delaware, and Chester--"The Birthplace of America"). This fascinating guide includes twenty maps providing locations for twenty burial grounds. Over 145 color images present graveyard monuments, ranging from simple early headstones of the 1600s to imposing Victorian ziggurats. View the penny-strewn grave of Benjamin Franklin, the monumental marker of General "Mad Anthony" Wayne, a granite obelisk commemorating the Revolutionary War's Paoli Massacre, mausoleums of Millionaires' Row at Laurel Hill, simple markers for runaway slaves seeking freedom, and the cast iron gates believed to prevent the wandering of restless souls.

Fascinating stories, sure to captivate the reader, include tales of such ghostly doings as ticking tombstones, a long departed general in search of his bones, spectral appearances of soldiers from the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and races with the Devil. For those readers with a passion for history, this book will be truly compelling.
